After 30 years of marriage, my wife and I are finally getting to Europe...I have been stubborn not wanting to go until I could stay at least 4 weeks...however, we were awarded a 7 day cruise out of Barcelona...but we have to get back a couple of days after it ends..however, we have a few days prior to the cruise - 3-4 days we can spend however we wish.
What I am asking opinions and thoughts about is the wisdom of spending all those days in Barcelona or flying from the states into either London or Paris and spending one day in each city before heading to Barcelona. I know its a terrible way to see Europe but I dont expect it to be our only trip here. I have left out a pre-cruise visit to Italy since most of the ports visited on the cruise are there.
Hope this makes sense and I look forward to anyone's/everyone's thoughts...
